Dear 5th Grade Families,
I wish to thank you all for your incredible generosity in your contributions to the class gift. Please know that it is greatly appreciated, and I am also grateful to be working with all of you this year.
Thank you to Mrs. Bontempo and Mrs. Goldner for coordinating a great Christmas party, Mr. Deeds and Mrs. Lucas for their help today, and to everyone who sent items for the celebration.
Finally, thank you for your contributions to the breakfast bag service project; we assembled 95 bags, and they will be distributed to the elderly and families in need this week and next.
Please visit the 5th grade page of the school website for pictures from this past week. I am grateful for a productive week with the 5th grade; we were able to finish the book and film version of
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, worked on organizing an essay, and learned about writing a good summary.
I wish you all a very joyous holiday, a safe and restful vacation, and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year. The next 5th grade newsletter will be published for the week of January 1st; this newsletter will include an electronic RSVP form for the DARE Graduation (you do not need to return the paper letter).
